  • Patent number: 10931508
    Abstract: An example framework and method facilitate instrumentation and management of computing environment resources, wherein the resources are distributed across various servers of the computing environment. The example framework employs a distributed synchronized tree or registry of information describing servers (e.g., MBean servers) and associated resources (e.g., as may be represented by MBeans) of the computing environment. A replica of the tree is maintained by each server. The tree facilitates peer-to-peer networking between participating servers for the purposes of discovering and sharing access to software management functionality (e.g., as may be provided via MBeans) offered thereby, and obviates reliance upon a centralized management server or network node to provide management functionality for all participating computing resources that may be distributed across servers of the network.

  • Patent number: 10726605
    Abstract: Various embodiments enable low frequency calculation of derived uniform values. A compiler can identify one or more portions of a shader that calculate a derived value based on an input value. For example, this portion may include instructions that use constant values, or the results of prior functions that used constant values. The constant values may include hardcoded values provided by the program (e.g., immediates) and/or other constant values. This portion of the shader can be extracted by the compiler and compiled into a first program. The compiler can compile the remainder of the shader into a second program that receives the derived uniform values from the first program. By extracting the portion(s) of the program that calculates a derived value into a separate program, the derived uniform value or values can be calculated at a lower frequency than if they were calculated for each pixel.

  • Patent number: 10725769
    Abstract: Deployment and servicing tasks associated with multi-tier, distributed applications, application environments and data centers are automated so that a person does not have to manually perform these tasks. All of the information describing and defining the distributed service is modeled and stored in a re-useable service template that can be used to drive an automated system to programmatically deploy and manage the service over time. Deployment and servicing of a distributed application can be automated using re-useable models that capture hardware and workload definitions. The re-useable models in the form of service templates enable delta-based servicing of the application. The service can be deployed to one or more physical machines, one or more virtual machines or to a combination thereof. A default deployment plan can be customized with instance-specific customizations of service parameters.

    Abstract: Case management systems and techniques are disclosed. In various embodiments, a case model definition with which a case instance is associated is parsed to determine a trigger condition to be monitored for with respect to the case instance and a business process external to the case instance that is to be triggered in the event the trigger condition is satisfied. It is detected with respect to the case instance that the trigger condition is satisfied. The business process is triggered with respect to the case instance, in response to detecting that the trigger condition is satisfied.

  • Patent number: 10664327
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein include mechanisms for encapsulating data that needs to be shared between or across processes. These mechanisms include slawx (plural of “slaw”), proteins, and pools. Generally, slawx provide the lowest-level of data definition for inter-process exchange, proteins provide mid-level structure and hooks for querying and filtering, and pools provide for high-level organization and access semantics. Slawx includes a mechanism for efficient, platform-independent data representation and access. Proteins provide a data encapsulation and transport scheme using slawx as the payload. Pools provide structured and flexible aggregation, ordering, filtering, and distribution of proteins within a process, among local processes, across a network between remote or distributed processes, and via longer term (e.g. on-disk, etc.) storage.

  • Patent number: 10642819
    Abstract: A method for automated filtering within an analytics dashboard includes integrating, by a server and within a user-interface software framework used to develop dynamic web applications, aspects of the analytics dashboard. The server sets a series of filters for a database associated with the analytics dashboard by, for each filter of the series of filters, defining how the filter operates on data within records of the database. The server detects an action through a user interface of the user-interface software framework. Responsive to detecting the action, the server sequentially applies the series of filters to the data within the records of the database according to a sequential order of the series of filters and with a pause between application of each filter. The server displays, within the analytics dashboard, each set of results sequentially in response to application of each respective filter of the series of filters.

  • Patent number: 10552780
    Abstract: The proper visualization of a business process plays a key role in analyzing, changing, simulating and monitoring the business process. Most BPMS systems today, provide a modeling environment where the business user can define and visualize business processes as BPMN diagrams. Some more advanced systems (such as Savvion Business Manager) enable monitoring of the business process at run-time via a color-coded view of the process diagram. While process diagram is an important view of the process, it lacks the level of abstraction needed to provide information in an optimal way to the business users. The proposed visualization, called the 360 degree view provides an optimal view of a business process without losing important details about the process.
